  • Lucky me

    One groomer in our area had surgery, can't groom. Another groomer in our area had a baby, can't groom. Another groomer quit or moved on and her replacement can't groom (I've seen the evidence, OH MY!!!).

    So guess who is getting a lot of their business? Yeah, me, and it's been great.

            I feel cheesy saying "Pet stylist." So I call myself a professional pet groomer, and that's as much as I can muster for now. Once my shop becomes a SALON, then maybe I'll up the title, lol. But we STILL don't have painted walls, it's just dry wall and it's UGLY, so I feel stupid even offering add-on services because we're so "ghetto" looking, lol.

                  Are you kidding? I started paying it on my tips in January (I hadn't paid it on my tips before because I felt it was such a trivial amount), and BAM, I got blasted during what is normally one of the slowest grooming months of the year. And it has continued to grow since then. I'd been there for 9 months, and it was steady for quite some time, few new clients. Then January came and nothing has been the same. I credit tithing.

                        I believe the direct translation would be "10%". Tithing is basically "10% of your income," donated to a particular religious denomination, in this case. I pay tithing on my income and tips. I firmly believe in it, and that 10% is only a tiny miniscule amount to give back after all I've been given. It comes back to me 100 fold. I also pay what is called a "fast offering," where you fast (skip meals) for 24 hours or so and donate that money to those who are less fortunate. Unfortunately I have a hard time skipping meals (I get shakey), but I still donate. Sorry, I don't usually talk religion on here, but since ya asked!

                          Titheing is part of faith in God. You tithe 10% of all your income. This goes toward missionaries in other countries and also this country that witness to people about God. Anyway about faith, you believe that God will help you out if you do the things that he wants to do.

                          Man, this is great. I never thought that anyone would be talking about this on here.

                            LOL, that's because usually people become "preachy," which I don't care for. A looong time ago someone tried to start a "christian groomers" thread, which I thought, personally, was sort of a bad idea. If they wanted to start their own website, I'd have no problem with that, but I just felt that a thread was asking for trouble on this website. People start debating about who's right, who's wrong, and I don't blame Stephen for saying no.

                            The tithing I pay goes to building churches, hymnals, pianos, organs, things like that. Fast offerings go directly to a fund for those who are in need---we are asked NOT to pay more than 10% tithing, but to be generous in our fast offerings, as that helps people of all nationalities and religious denominations, particularly when disaster strikes. We pay our own way on missions, or our families pay, and we also have PEF (Perpetual Education Fund) which is a donation to help those of my faith in other countries to pay for schooling. Then, after they get their education, they pay the sum back and it goes to somebody else who needs it. Various churches use their funds in different ways, this is how I've been doing it . This should probably be in the off topic topics now, lol.

                              That's great Tammy. We had a groomer go on sick leave recently, and it was pretty cool because they referred all of their dogs to us! It was a vet groomer, so we were a little afraid we would get a lot of dogs that needed to be sedated (which we don't do) or at least problem dogs that other shops won't do. But surprisingly enough we didn't get any of those!
